Over the course of the term, we will be using the story ‘Tidy’ by Emily Gravett to inspire us to explore different characters and ideas within a story. We will use the text to support different writing styles and genres, and develop our vocabulary use throughout.


We will also read ‘Stick Man’ by Julia Donaldson and have fun with rhyming words and rhyming couplets. We will explore different story settings and use this to develop our own narratives.


To support and develop our written work, our marking gnome will help us to remember to...

  • begin our sentences with a capital letter
  • finish with a full stop
  • write on the lines
  • leave gaps between our words
  • use curly cursive school handwriting
